$35 for a Romantic Italian Dinner for Two (Up to $77 Total Value)

  • One appetizer (up to a $13 value)
  • Two entrees (up to a $24 value each)
  • Two flutes of prosecco (an $8 value each)

Il Forno Caldo serves heaps of fresh homemade pasta and rich seafood risottos in a dining room that Gayot calls an "unexpected charmer." The menu mingles sweet and savory with roasted sweet peppers and goat cheese, sprinkled with sun-dried tomatoes and olive oil. Lobster risotto tosses baby lobster in al dente arborio rice and butternut squash, and chicken parmigiana warbles under a shower of mozzarella, white wine, and marinara. Fresh-made penne in pink sauce slumbers under shreds of astringent basil, torn to pieces by knowledgeable chefs and an unrequited love for doomed chunks of bruschetta. All of this is complemented by the light sweetness of sparkling prosecco, which fills flutes with the unmistakable presence of liquid. During the meal, guests can form finger-puppet ghosts with the white linen tablecloths or compare blowfish impressions in the mirrored wall panels. Rich red curtains lend an air of Old-World glamour to the romantic dining room, whose honey-colored wooden shelves display gleaming bottles of rare, classic, and California "cult" wines.

Il Forno Caldo

Il Forno Caldo translates to the hot oven —an appropriate name for an Italian restaurant where chefs fire up a cavalcade of Old-World dishes to pair with pastas rolled and cut fresh daily. While angel hair, rigatoni, and penne simmer in sauces such as pesto and bolognese, the tireless chefs fashion linguine lassos to reign in clams, mussels, and other delectable sea candies. Pizzas smothered in rich tomato sauce and melted mozzarella emerge from the eponymous hot oven, and more than 300 varieties of wine await pairing with the appropriate meats and sauces.

Out in the dining room, which Gayot calls an "unexpected charmer," diners dig into slices of pizza fresh from the kitchen's eponymous hot oven, or sip one of 300 wines extracted directly from the giant, pulsing grape in the restaurant's cellar.
